Abstract: Multi-Attribute Decision Making (MADM) theory is a way to obtain good quality assessment for parallel and distributed software. It provides adequate tools to compute a synthetic characterization, named High Performance Computing (HPC) merit, which may be used in operations like software comparisons / rankings / optimizations. The paper presents the general assessment model with its associated assessment problems and a terse and telling case study. The assessment model is described and solved by the Internet mathematical service named OPTCHOICE (MADM modeling and optimal choice problem solving). It provides a multitude of normalization and solving methods generating diverse assessments, but always a global assessment is delivered.
Keywords: Software Assessment, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Multiple Attribute Decision Making, Comparisons / Rankings / Optimizations through the agency of the High Performance Computing Merits.
